One of my goal for January was to start drinking smothies for breakfast instead of the cakes, cookies, muffins... that i usually quickly grab before leaving in the morning. It's not the greatest season for smoothies if like me you are not a winter-fruits' fan, but thanks to my freezer, i made it work.

I tried a few different, recipes, some i didn't like at all. I tried one with clementines (is that how you say it in english too?), but the "skin" of the quarters never mixed properly. Not good. I did one with mango, pretty tasty but a bit too pulpy for my taste. I did one with peaches and honey, delicious! And my favorite recipe so far: raspberry, blueberry and some banana. Berry fruits are my favorite and make delicious smoothies!

Besides fruits, i added green leaves (mostly spinach) and yogurt to all of them, which made a perfect breakfast or energy snack (after sport for instance). The great thing about spinach is that it's really good for your body but you can't taste it at all!

I don't drink one everyday (i think diversity is important for you and your body), still go to Starbucks some mornings, but every time i have one, i feel so great! And full of energy. Which you know, was kinda the point ;)

Can't wait for Spring and fresh fruits!

  1. I will have to try this, as I eat cereals every day usually and they fill me up, but they don 't make me feel 'good'. My freezer is broken though, so I'll have to see what fresh or tinned fruits I can get...!
